Come join us for our monthly get-together. Continental Breakfast at 9:30 and the meeting starts at 10:00. In September our meeting is a social event. Join us for games and conversation.
At our October meeting, Mensa 76 member John Eastman will speak about the "Amazing Migration".
Amazing Migration is an interactive class exploring the basics of bird migration as well as some extraordinary aspects and cutting-edge discoveries about these remarkable journeys. Why do birds migrate? How do they find their way? What kind of preparation do birds need before migrating? What are the hazards? Is migration innate or learned? Participate and laugh a bit while learning some migration vocabulary, remarkable statistics, and how you can help avian populations.
John Eastman is a 50 year member of Mensa 76 and past President (Loc Sec). He is retired and a birder. He is married to a birder, Jane. He and Jane both have over 1150 species of birds seen around the world.
Would you like to socialize with other Mensans in your area on a regular basis? The Denton area Mensans have enjoyed a weekly coffee and food gathering for years at a local coffee shop. You may have noticed HOTDAM (Hang Out Together with Denton Area Mensans) in our newsletter calendar. They sometimes do other activities also such as museum visits and tours. You could do the same in your area. Weekly/monthly lunches/dinners might also be considered. If any of you are interested in trying to set up a Wichita Falls Area group, we need someone to be the local point of contact. If you want to be that contact please notify me at s.alsup(at)sbcglobal.net
You also have enough members in your areas to make this a viable option.
Granbury Area Mensans Social
(Granbury, Cleburne, Stephenville, Weatherford and surrounding area)
Jason Wrinkle, a new member of Mensa 76 residing in Stephenville, is interested in starting an area subgroup for members in Granbury, Cleburne, Stephenville, Weatherford and surrounding areas with a goal of having monthly social activities with other Mensa 76 members in the local area thereby providing shorter travel times. This could also provide an opportunity for carpooling to activities farther from home.
Jason has started contacting local members and will continue to make contact with those who have allowed American Mensa to provide their contact information.ason has volunteered to be the contact point and can be reached at jason.wrinkle(at)gmail.com or telephone 254-433-8137. He has also formed a facebook group which you can join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/GAMS76/. NOTE: Jason has already proposed an initial meeting with details subject to change as detailed on the subgroup's facebook page.
Mensa 76 hosts a variety of events to encourage social connections with other Mensans and help stimulate the minds of our members. Non-members are welcome to attend events to meet local Mensans, learn what Mensa is about, and get a feel for the local chapter before joining.
